Rick DiPietro recorded his 106th win of his career tonight.

That ties Kelly Hrudey for third on the all-time Islander list. Billy Smith won 304 games for the Isles while Chico Resch won 157.

It's his 16th overtime win, which is a club record (Hrudey won 10 in OT).

DiPietro has 16 of the Islanders' 17 wins this season (Dubie won in relief on Al Arbour night). His 16 wins are two behind Evgeny Nabokov for the league lead. (Several other goalies have either 16 or 17 wins)

DiPietro is now 8-3 against the Caps in his career.
